Reports have emerged that Blink 182 is set to perform at Lollapalooza Brazil in 2023, likely with Tom DeLonge back. Lollapalooza Brasil 2023 is getting closer and fans are eagerly waiting for the official announcements. The event promises to have “the best line-up in the festival’s history” and it is quite possible that the three headliners have already been decided. Q101 has doubled down and stated that they were blowing Live Nation’s ‘nut’ on an upcoming Blink-182 tour announcement. Fans are speculating that a huge announcement will be made soon.
Blink-182 could have a reunion
Famous source of news about concerts in Brazil, journalist José Norberto Flesch has already announced four very important attractions for the new edition of the festival that takes place at the Interlagos Circuit, in São Paulo, on March 24, 25, and 26, 2023.
The first announcement – which was made by columnist Leo Dias and confirmed by Flesch – was that of Billie Eilish, who had her debut in Brazil postponed due to the pandemic and may finally arrive in the country as one of the main attractions of the event.
Then, in line with the statements of the director of Lolla Chile who promised bands that never came to the continent, came the information that blink-182 will make their first tour of the country as part of the event. A few days later, it was Paramore‘s turn to be announced, but the band is not expected to headline.
Blink- 182 fans have been waiting for a reunion for much longer now. Travis Barker had seemingly teasing a Blink-182 themed reunion. The band, as we were last aware now consists of Matt Skiba, Mark Hoppus, and Travis Barker, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be seeing a reunion of the original lineup featuring Tom DeLonge.
There have been some small tidbits of easter eggs left for Blink fans like a re-issue of Tom DeLonge’s Fender strat which was made famous in his Blink-182 days. We will have to see if the lineup changes.
